Backyard Bug Pics

This past weekend I took one of my cameras into the back yard to see if I could spot some interesting bugs to photograph.  Not a lot going on, the butterflies really like our Butterfly Bushes, but they aren't blooming yet.
I spotted these around a milkweed plant that is in bloom.  (Click photos to see larger versions.)

I know...this one is a bottle fly. Not too exciting, right?  But the shiny green IS sort of interesting.  Looks like the lenses of ultra-cool mirrored sunglasses maybe.

    Outstanding pics, these all look like they are ready for framing. I keep saying I am going to do more with my camera but never get around to it, these pics could motivate me. Thanks for sharing
